Deccan Chronicles has reported that Shah Rukh Khan is all set to star in Imtiaz Ali‘s next! Their source elaborated that Shah Rukh and Imtiaz met a few months ago to discuss a subject. Shah Rukh’s process of listening to a script is very detailed as he likes to meet the director often to understand the subject and soak in the character. He has met Imtiaz a number of times to give his feedback so that two of them are on the same page. After these discussions, SRK has apparently given his nod to the movie. Says the source:
Right now, only the core team members know the basic idea of the story. But it is definitely a romantic film and Imtiaz Ali will try to present Shah Rukh in a very new avatar. Taking his stardom in mind, he would try and break the clichés and uncover a new side to the actor. While Shah Rukh is still left to shoot some part of Raees which he will finish it by January. Fan is completely shot and is almost ready. If all goes well, Shah Rukh will start shooting for the film in the first half of 2016.
